The plot of the film is a good idea, using the subject of racism well while adding a new element during the closing acts. The story is as follows: Chris, a young African American photographer (and I hate writing it like that) and his White American girlfriend Rose are heading to visit Rose's family in a Stepford wives like suburb. Unaware Chris is black the family are a little surprised and awkward with the young man. As the evening arrives a series of strange events happen, Chris notices the black people who work in the house of Rose's family are acting a little strange and after an equally strange moment with Rose's mother, Chis is feeling a bit uneasy. Then the next day the welcome party arrives, a group of the family's close friends there to join in the festivities, all equally as awkward with Chris, using racial friendly language in front of him for some reason. Then the real truth becomes clear and Chris enters a near impossible situation that could mean the end of list live as he knows it.
There are some well thought out moments in the film. The final half of the film is gripping yet feels original which is very good to see, however I still found myself getting a little bored at times. On saying that though, Get Out is in no way a bad film. Yes it is a slow burner but the story is key here, especially as the acting wasn't the greatest throughout.
This is worth a watch and is more for the thriller fan in me than the horror fan. The acting is OKAY, the story was interesting but I honestly believe the hype for the film had dampened the experience for me.
